    Ditto - what an absolutely fabulous quilt. If your son is as good at what he does as his Mom is at what she does, the world's a better place for sure!

    My DH has flown many times. He just said your quilt and quilting are outstanding. He said the helicopter looks like an A-STAR. Is that what you modelled it after? Great job!!!

    I modeled it after a Robinson R-44. I tried to get as much detail as possible without losing the puffiness of the quilting. That is the type of ship he is presently flying. There is more detail on my blog. Thanks for stopping by.

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.
